Did you usher Halloween swiftly out the door… only to have Christmas sneak in as quickly as Halloween left?
If you celebrate the holidays in your piano studio, you’ll know that nothing quite breaks up the long winter months like the Christmas season; carols, fun activities, parties, recitals, treats… for piano students it just doesn’t get any better.
Capitalizing on this holiday excitement is a great way to inspire home practice and pump up the motivation and excitement in your studio.
So, as a couple of “Christmas Music Fanatics” we’re getting a head-start on the fun with the piece we’re sharing today!
A Printable Christmas Tune For Your Teens (Or For You!)
Today we wanted to kick off the season of giving (what can I say… piano teachers start early!) by sharing a show-stopping teen recital piece with all of our Teach Piano Today readers (the download is after the video).
Three Ships is a Christmas Pop Piano Solo that is destined to be a holiday favorite with your students. If you’re a PianoBookClub member whose students went crazy for The Silver Screen Playbook and The Guardians of Arranmore, then this piece will be right in their wheelhouse.
And now… on to the music! Check out the video preview of “Three Ships” and then keep reading to download the sheet music.
If Three Ships sounds like just what you need for a rockin’ Christmas recital, here it is, ready to print and play.
But wait! We’d also love to hear from you in the comments below… What other piano pieces from Teach Piano Today or PianoBookClub will be making an appearance in your holiday recitals?
We’ll be choosing five commenters at random to receive our book Rollicking Reindeer: Student-Teacher Duets To Reinforce Rhythm (and don’t worry, if you already own it you can choose a different book instead!). Comment before 12:00am PST on Sunday, November 8th, 2015 to be entered.
